Whistler Film Festival

Very happy to announce that Floating Light won the ShortWork Student Award at Whistler Film Festival! It's been a long process, so I would like to thank everyone who helped on the project!

The jury also made a very kind statement about Floating Light in the press release:

The future of BC filmmaking is in very good hands. This was a very impressive lineup of student shorts, so to standout amongst this group is a major accomplishment. For its impressive performances, dreamy aesthetic, and for the assuredness and subtly in its directorial vision, the jury is pleased to give this award to a stunningly accomplished and inventive film that uses a quiet voice to speak loudly. This is a filmmaker with an extremely bright future.

I am extremely grateful to have been able to make this film and attend such amazing festivals! Hopefully, there will be more festivals to visit (and films to make) in the future.
